Shop local this fall, and bring a friend to save double
A little peer pressure can be a good thing when you go shopping in downtown and Old Sacramento this fall: The savings double when you bring a friend.
The Downtown Sacramento Partnership and local businesses encourage you to shop Sept. 13-22 at participating downtown and Old Sacramento businesses and save 10 percent on all purchases. If you bring a friend, you’ll both save 20 percent.
Why is shopping local important? According to the independent business support organization The 3/50 Project, $68 of every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. Spend that at a national chain, and only $43 stays local. Buying online? None of it stays local.
Some of the downtown and Old Sacramento businesses participating in Shop Local include:
Chef’s Olive Oil Mix
Christmas & Co.
Her Closet Boutique
Old City Kites
Taylor’s Art & Soul
U.BE.U. Fashion Boutique
Exclusions may apply to some offers, so check with participating businesses for more details.
